The Western Bulldogs will be out to change perceptions when the 2020 season resumes in two weeks.

Dogs coach Luke Beveridge is expecting a spike in performance from his troops when they take on St Kilda on June 14, after the Club’s hefty Round 1 loss to Collingwood.

"We're aware that how you're categorised, how you're labelled and how you're perceived is based on your most recent performance or performances,” Beveridge said.

“We don’t like where we sit at the moment.

"We can have a desire and an objective to play a certain way, but it's just talk until you see it.

"That will be our challenge, to put it into action and to change perception and develop and gain a reputation that we're proud of."

If training form is anything to go by, the Bulldogs are in a good position to bounce back.

Beveridge said it’s been difficult to gauge the absolute fitness levels of the players after an unusual period of isolation and small block of training before the season resumption.

However, fitness testing has been promising, as has the players’ attitude on and off the track.

“They look good, and their emotions are in order.  They’re enthusiastic, and they’re enjoying each other’s company,” he said.

“There’ll never be any excuses, but I feel like we’re going to physically fine.”

The Bulldogs players completed their second full group session on Friday, which included some match practice.
